Cemetery is quite overgrown, so possibly some fieldstones were missed. One marker is face down and will need several people to set it upright. It is immediately adjacent to Loretta Elvines Bell (Retta L, wife of Thomas Jefferson bell). There are clearly many more depression, so Charles M. Bennett’s 30 count is probably close.
